Ghostly Gaffes: A Guide to Preventing Halloween Personal Injuries.

Halloween is an exciting time of year, but it can also be dangerous. With all the costumes, decorations, and candy, it’s easy to forget about safety. Here are 5 tips to prevent Halloween personal injuries:

1. Choose Safe Costumes

When choosing a costume, make sure it’s safe. Avoid costumes that are too tight or too loose, as they can cause tripping or choking hazards. Choose costumes with bright colors or reflective material to make it easier to see in the dark.

2. Use Safe Decorations

Decorations are a big part of Halloween, but they can also be dangerous. Make sure to choose decorations that are flame-resistant and keep them away from candles or other heat sources. Avoid using fake spider webs, as they can be a choking hazard for children and pets.

3. Practice Safe Trick-or-Treating

Trick-or-treating can be dangerous, especially if you’re not careful. Always walk on the sidewalk and cross the street at crosswalks or intersections. Use flashlights or glow sticks to make it easier to see and be seen. Check your candy before eating it to make sure it hasn’t been tampered with.

4. Avoid Fire Hazards

Halloween is a popular time for candles, but they can also be a fire hazard. Use battery-operated candles instead of real ones. If you do use real candles, make sure they’re in a secure holder and never leave them unattended.

5. Drive Safely

If you’re driving on Halloween, be extra cautious. Watch for children crossing the street and slow down in residential areas. Avoid distracted driving, such as using your phone or eating while driving.
